White Viva E Coupe

Driving along the Nantwich bypass in Cheshire on Saturday afternoon, I followed a clean white Viva E coupe:

Picture is pretty awful as I was trying to concentrate on the road. Anyone on here?

Going by the registration number is this not the Viva E that Pam has for sale in the Vivas for sale section?

Looks like it. It was miles away from Banstead, though, so maybe it's been sold.

Hi,
Viva on its way to Holyhead ferry to its new home in Galway, Ireland.
Never missed a beat from Surrey to Galway,approx 450 miles.
Great fun and great car.

Congratulations on your purchase I travelled a similar distance with mine last August and have enjoyed driving it ever since.
What are your plans for it, leave it standard or modify it??

Good for you, I had originally intended to change mine to a 2300 engine, twin headlights, rostyles etc. but have been persuaded by others on the forum not to do this so I will be keeping mine original as well.

Keep in touch,

Regards, Fraser.

Original is probably best in the long run.
I already have a white Magnum, so do not feel the need to modify the Viva.

There is nothing better than keep it original as much as possible. :D
